Mains 2020 : Essay and GS Discussion, Issues, Difficulty Level, Way ahead

Hello All, Essay paper is done. Question was a bit weird, at least part A where quotes were also not famous types. How did people approach the essay paper, which topics did you write on ? Did you use whitener anywhere? Did you do rough work ?

@Sunny18 I wrote for factors which will influence decision to sell arms to a country
1. country should be democratic
2. friendly towards india
3. should not have past record of human right violation
4. should have mechanism to stop diversion of arms to terrorists
5. should use weapons only for defense and not aggresion against other countries

With respect to the missiles questions,

Factors I wrote in part b were

1. Ethical literacy of the chairman; how much the issue creates dissonance within him

 2. His attitude towards world peace, arms trade etc. 

3. Emotional intelligence and communication versatility to communicate his views with colleagues and government and form opinion

4. Responsibility and objectivity towards his organisation i.e. BML

5. Attitude towards the said nation, his previous record etc.


I thought to emphasize more on ethical delibrations rather than mechanically delineating the "factors."
